Glenwood takes second at Summit swim meet
Zoe Lyon earned a pair of first-place finishes and had a second-place finish in the 100-yard freestyle, and Glenwood Springs High School’s girls swimming team finished second in a four-team meet at Summit High School in Frisco on Saturday.
Lyon finished first in the 100 backstroke, winning in 1 minute, 9.05 seconds. She was also the first leg on the Demons’ winning 400 freestyle relay that included Kendall Knott, Lily Maccachran and Kristen Davis that posted a time of 4:40.18.
Knott had two second-place finishes of her own, placing second in the 50 freestyle in 29.34 and finishing as the runner-up in the 100 backstroke — behind Lyon — in 1:13.06. Lyon posted a second-place time of 1:03.44 in the 100 freestyle.
Glenwood coach Steve Vanderhoof said the meet served as more of a junior varsity meet for the Demons, who were missing five of their more-advanced swimmers who were attending advanced-placement study sessions on Saturday.
Summit won the four-team meet with 571 points, with Glenwood (521), Moffat County (371) and Aspen (92) following. Glenwood’s swimmers scored more than the meet-winning Tigers, but Summit scored their decisive points by competing with the meet’s only three divers.
Other Glenwood swimmers who placed high included Davis, who finished second in the 200 freestyle in 2:21.76, and in the 500 freestyle in 6:14.70. Maccachran was third in the 100 breaststroke (1:29.36), and the Demons’ 200 medley and 200 freestyle relay teams also managed third-place finishes.
Glenwood’s 200 medley relay team included Lyon, Elana Neiley, Lily Maccachran and Aliya Gilman. The 200 freestyle relay team included Knott, Neiley, Elizabeth Cordon and Ivey Truelove.
Each year, the Lions Club uses race proceeds from the FireKracker 4K race to provide eye examinations and eye glasses for those in the Roaring Fork Valley who are in need.
